Drippings are obviously ideal. But they aren’t totally necessary to make a really good gravy. What you do need: butter, onion, garlic, and all the Thanksgiving herbs.
Before you should even be thinking about gravy, you need the perfect roast turkey.
large onion, finely chopped
cloves garlic, minced
chopped fresh sage

- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and cook until soft, 5 minutes, then stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Stir in flour and herbs and cook for 1 minute, then gradually whisk in 2 cups broth.
- Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat slightly and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. If the gravy is too thick, add more broth.
